This is a spectacular debut trying to puzzle though our present, from the workplace to the pop charts but most of all to the politics of struggle. The latest in AK's Commune Editions imprint, Cruel Fiction brings together new material with celebrated work published here for the first time in book form, including the provocative and charged 'Brazilian Is Not a Race', a sonnet sequence meditating on race, nation, and history seen from the author's native Rio Grande Valley; it also includes the widely-circulated '128-131', a caustic, hilarious, tender account memorialising three days in jail during the Occupy movement.
